There's a few websites I keep finding myself referring to in order to figure out how to recycle stuff.
One really practical one is http://www.lime.com/features/limes_guide_to_recycling/story/11485/how_to_recycle_everything
They tell you how to recycle anything and everything!
One I just stumbled on today is http://www.selfsufficientish.com/ This website is really fun, it's full of diy projects as well as a few recycling tips. Some of the tips I didn't get because they're British, any Brits wanna translate? They suggest using a bread bag to wrap your "sarnies" in? maybe it means sandwiches?? ; )
Some good recycling projects on the site include making seedling pots out of newspaper, http://www.selfsufficientish.com/newspaperpots.htm
The afore mentioned 66 uses for a bread bag
They also have info about how to recycle stuff in the UK http://www.selfsufficientish.com/recycle.htm
I found this link on the Self-sufficientish site: http://www.recycling.moonfruit.com/ This guy takes recycling plastic containers to a new level by using them as planters on a large scale.
Another great recycling website is Freecycle http://www.freecycle.org/ that's how I get a lot of the plastic bags I use to make my jewelry ect. You can post items you want to get rid of there and if someone wants it they'll pick it up. : )
Also ReadyMade Magazine is offering a free issue viewable online this month, so take advantage! There's a great recycling project for turning old plastic soda bottles into pendant lamps. http://www.readymade-digital.com/readymade/20080405/?pm=2&zin=164&u1=texterity&pg=34&z=82
....and while checking out that ReadyMade issue I happened upon this site:http://www.recyclethis.co.uk/ Those Brits have got recycling down to an art!
